Christian Bale, star of “The Dark Knight” trilogy, visited victims of the movie theater massacre in Aurora, Colo. on Tuesday, Warner Bros. confirmed to the Denver Post.

Bale went to Aurora to offer his condolences as an individual rather than as a spokesperson for the production company.

“Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Brothers,” said an assistant to Susan Fleishman, the executive vice president for corporate communications at Warner Bros.

Others have expressed the opinion that Bale should do this earlier. A Facebook campaign emerged attempting to convince Bale to visit the town. A young woman named Emily Sanchez posted a request that went viral, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

“I propose we should make enough noise asking Christian Bale to visit these kids in the hospital dressed in the real Batman outfit. They need to know Heroes can be real too, not just the bad guys,” Sanchez wrote.

“Words cannot express the horror that I feel,” Bale said in a statement released on Saturday, “I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.”

Bale arrived in an ambulance around 2 p.m., reports Fox 31 Denver.
